This was my Sunday to do the treats for our Visitor's at church.
I was shopping at Costco's and found these cute heart shortbread cookie's dipped in chocolate.
I had already planned on making Whoopie pies so I did make them too.
I found these cute heart plates at Sur La Table for 50% off so I got three of them and stacked them on top of each other and it turned out cute. I love this Whoopie recipe so if you want it you will have wait till the new church cookbook comes out:)

Happy New Year!

Well , it has been a long time since I added anything. I am going to try harder this year. I really have been cooking! I just can't seem to remember to take pictures until after everything is eaten. So I am going to try again:) We started the New Year out with our traditional Pork and Sauerkraut, Mashed Potatoes. Hope you all have a Blessed year!

This is another Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. Everyone loves this! You have to find a butcher or your local grocery who will grind the ham and pork for you Bigg's grocery will do it for you. I ask for the leanest pork and ham and ask them to mix it together.
They like to do a whole ham and pork loin so you might ask them if they will do less if you don't want to make extra. It amounts to about 8 lbs and I just adjust my recipe for that amount.
I get a large amount and make extra to freeze or give away. Well, here is the recipe. ENJOY!


1 1/2 lb ground ham

1 1/2 lb ground pork

2 eggs

1 tsp pepper

1 cup bread crumbs

1 cup milk

Combine first five ingredients. Form into loaf and bake at 350 degrees with meat thermometer until it reaches 170 degrees about 1 to 1 1/2 hours

Combine sauce ingredients to pour over ham loaf during last 1/2 hour of baking.

Baste several times. Serves 12.


1/4 cup vinegar

3/4 cup water

1 tsp dry mustard

3/4 cup brown sugar

cook in sauce pan till hot

Pour over loaf last 30 Min's of baking and Baste several times.
Optional: Brown slices of pineapple in juice to serve over ham.

When I make this dish I can wrap the Pastor around my finger:) I could never figure this out but his Mom made this for him and I inherited the dish from her. Now I like this dish but for the Pastor this is his favorite one. I don't like to shop but if I did I could probably shop till I drop for this meal. So I am going to have to think of something else like maybe take out the trash:) Only a few of you will get that one. Well here is what you need.

Melt 3 sticks of butter in a pan.

Add 2 cups of Bread Crumbs and brown a little.

Boil the noodles for 7 mins and drain.
Add them to the bread crumb mixture and stir and there you have it. Fried Noodles another Pennsylvania dish. Have a great week. Coming up! HAM LOAF.
